646 RBTs and three drink driv­ers

Isis Town and Country - - News -

DE­SPITE heavy traf­fic on the Bruce Hwy as hol­i­day makers made their way home, Childers po­lice say driv­ers were “rea­son­ably” well be­haved with 21 in­fringe­ment no­tices is­sued.

Childers po­lice of­fi­cer-in-charge Sergeant Ge­off Fay said that from New Year’s Eve un­til Sun­day night of­fi­cers con­ducted 646 ran­dom breath tests and caught three drink driv­ers and one drug driver.

“There were two mi­nor traf­fic in­ci­dents with no in­juries... three un­reg­is­tered and unin­sured driv­ers and two un­li­censed driv­ers,” Sgt Fay said.

He said with a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of mo­torists head­ing home af­ter the ex­tended long week­ends it was dis­ap­point­ing some driv­ers con­tin­ued to ig­nore the fa­tal five but on the whole most were do­ing the right thing.

“There was a lot of traf­fic ... driv­ers were rea­son­ably well be­haved ex­cept for a few,” he said.
